3-D secure offers an added layer of security for online credit and debit card transactions, validating that the online shopper is actually the cardholder. It enables cardholders to create a PIN, or ‘secure code,’ and assign it to their credit card. During checkout, the Customer is prompted to enter their PIN. The cardholder’s identity can then be confirmed by their issuing bank.
3-D Secure adds another authentication step for online payments. Merchants are encouraged to use 3-D Secure to achieve higher coverage against fraud losses. When a merchant does not use 3-D Secure they are liable for fraudulent transactions even if the transaction was properly authorized. Cardholder’s who aren’t enrolled in 3D Secure will not notice any change to their transaction process.
